Hi-Fructose magazine turned 10 years old this year. At MOCA they marked the 10th anniversary by featuring the works of 51 artists who were featured between its pages. The exhibition entitled Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose features works by artists in a variety of media, such as installation, painting, photography, sculpture and ceramics. Below are a few of my favorists:

The Bob Marley Museum

The Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, Jamaica, WI is a tourist attraction full of information and antiques from the life and music of Bob Marley. From 1975 to 1981 the artist used the home as a site of business and recording, and it was converted to a Museum six years after his death by his wife Rita Marley. Music permeates the premises and attractions on the site, and it is a great place to visit while on the island! For more information click here.

Below are some of my favorite photos from my site visit:
